by president bush for the first and president obama for the second. the discussion is who will replace the chairman and how much faith can people have on what he says if the fed chairman will leave in early 2014? it makes appointments for now providing continuity to the fed but powell's term erxpires january '13. and duke is another one whose term may be up. if bernanke chooses to stay on, many believe he should do to preserve the independence. there's much for the central bank to discuss. also not a lot to decide. here's some of the things on the table for the fed. something called the treasury cliff. i'm calling it that. operation twist will end and stop long-term treasuries. what does it do when it ends? expectation is that it goes out and buys long-term treasuries in addition to mortgage backed securities. they're debating whether or not to have numerical targets. many members have expressed unhappiness with calendar date guidance. and then guiding market expectations is going to be key for the fed here. how do you calibrate how much qe the fed does with economic data? we used to d

in theory at least romney is more pro-business relative to obama. that's good for stocks. it's not that easy. beyond that there's a whole issue of the future of the fed and their commitment to the five-year ranks where they are and under romney that would not be the case. the big thing for us in the election is the bond market. that's highly asymmetric. could be a big loser on romney victory and the stock market has to deal with that even if the risk premium would come down. >> thanks for having us. sounds like jim was listening to the "squawk on the street" discussion we had yesterday on why the romney victory may not be great for stocks. >> cramming in a lot of information in a short period of time. we'll come to you later. you just heard from jim o'neill. still ahead, an exclusive with the man at the head of goldman sachs. that's lloyd blankfein. >> one restaurant stock that's still feeling the love this earning season. we'll talk about panera. for how long can it stay on top of its game? look at those games today. the company's ceo and executive chairman will join us live on cnbc. if we

not like obama will say this was padded by five more planes sold. this one was padded by an error that will be reversed or california counted twice. we're in a weird mode. whatever it said, if it's positive, it's a lie. i'm not buying that. these are good numbers. reverse the market. it's for real. >> good or just not bad? >> not bad. any kind of good news would be welcome right here and this comes under the category of good news. >> better than what we anticipated. better than we saw in the last quarter. maybe we can keep it going although one wonders where we are this quarter already given how much talk there is about the fiscal cliff and everyone pulling back and not like the numbers we've seen although those were third quarter numbers we saw from corporate america but particularly technology where it seems as though spending really did slow. >> september was bad. the u.k. yesterday posted a number of 1%. i was watching when the number came out. there were people high fiving. 2%. that's twice as good as what they did. >> two times the amount of high five. >> romney supporters m
